Lindsay’s love for Holistic Nutrition started after she developed Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis in 2008, and she learned how much of a role good food played in her health and well being.
She started her career in Molecular Biology and Genetics after graduating from Guelph University with a Bachelor of Science with Honours, working in labs doing research up until her family needed her at home. At that time, she completed the Natural Nutrition Program at CSNN in 2015 and has been integrating her knowledge of holistic nutrition with her family, friends, and clients.
Her background in Biology, Biochemistry, and Genetics has helped give her a deeper understanding of the workings of nutrition and the role it has on the body, which she now shares with the students at CSNN and Grant Macewan University. She is a firm believer in evidence based nutrition science and brings her passion on this topic to the classroom to ensure students are up to date on current research, which enables graduates to provide the best possible recommendations to their clients.
She is passionate about coaching clients and encouraging healthy diet and lifestyle habits for anyone wishing to better their health.
